Considerations for an exercise training program for women living with obesity-related infertility: a community-based feasibility study

Increased physical activity has been shown to be beneficial for people who experience infertility and obesity. However, limited research exists on exercise programs that help women improve their ability to conceive. Using the principles of exercise science, our research team will develop an exercise program for women experiencing infertility and obesity. Due to COVID-19, there has been a suspension in fertility services, highlighting the need for non-invasive treatment options that can be prescribed virtually.
Nutra Holdings Inc. is a nutritional supplement e-commerce company based in St. John’s, NL. This is an innovative partnership as the development of an exercise program for women with infertility will expand Nutra Holdings Inc. into the field of exercise prescription. In the future, this has potential for new products to include packaging exercise programs and supplements. Nutra Holding Inc. will share principles of marketing for knowledge translation from academic research to the general public.
